U.S. plans to test THAAD missile defences as North Korea tensions mount

Fox Host Says Kim Jong Un Needs To Be Killed Or Overthrown Guest Post

US Ambassador Nikki Haley called the launch "a clear and sharp military escalation" and warned that Washington was ready to use military force "but we prefer not to have to go in that direction". Each of those leaders have spoken out against North Korea's provocations, and Trump has leaned on China in particular to rein in the rogue regime but acknowledged recently that it's not working.

A pair of B-1B Lancer strategic bombers were launched from a USA airbase in Guam and joined Korean Koku Jieitai JASDF F-2 fighters over the East China Sea.

The test-firing of its first ICBM has sparked fresh tensions over the Korean Peninsula and the allies of South Korea as the North's missile capabilities are seen as growing at a faster pace than expected.

Mocking the South as "puppet military gangsters", the KCNA report added: "It will be as easy as a piece of cake for the (North) to wipe out the puppet forces.as we are now able to destroy even the U.S. mainland across the ocean".

On their way back to Guam, the bombers flew with Japanese fighter jets over the East China Sea, it added.

Just this morning, Trump said the country's launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile over the weekend would garner a "very severe" response.

For China, the worst-case scenario is a collapse of the regime in Pyongyang, which could see an influx of refugees from its impoverished neighbor, and worse yet, US troops stationed on its border in a united Korea.

The Los Angeles Coroner's office has deemed the cause of death a suicide after she was found in her home on Saturday. The actress first gained widespread internet fame in 2006 via her popular YouTube series titled Little Loca .

Haley said on Wednesday the United States would propose new UN sanctions in coming days and warned that if Russian Federation and China did not support the move, then "we will go our own path". While he offered no specifics, he has not ruled out military action.

As Radar has reported, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un fired off an apparent intercontinental ballistic missile into waters near Japan - and experts claimed it could have reached Alaska.

On Friday, more than 120 countries at a United Nations meeting approved the first-ever treaty to ban nuclear weapons, but the USA and a handful of other countries abstained from the vote. "The rationale is that based on our (Ministry of Defence's) assessment we cannot confirm that the missile can be classified as an ICBM", Russia's United Nations mission said in an email to its Security Council colleagues. China has also been concerned that a reunited, democratic Korea - dominated by South Korea - would put a US ally, and possibly USA forces, on its border.

"Together, we are facing the threat of the reckless and brutal regime in North Korea", Trump said at the White House.

Mount told CNN then that the USA hasn't given North Korea any "red lines" it can not cross, meaning the Kim regime has no reason to stop moving ahead with its nuclear missile program.

North Korea was also pleased that its test came as Americans celebrated Independence Day.
